      My doctor told me that no one really knows the exact cause but stress is likely to play a part. For me, stress was the trigger. Symptoms began during a very stressful time for me. However, everyone is different with costochondritis. With some people it goes away on its own, others have it chronically and some have come and go pain. My first flare up went away when the doctor said it would. I was told to try painkillers and wait it out and try non wired bras. I didn't have to do any of those things. It simply went away. It has come back mildly for very short periods since.

      I've had it on and off for 30 years+. It comes and goes. I find the pain sharpens when I press on a rib in the approximate area. It's a nuisance but not serious.

    Have you had an endoscopy? You could possibly have a hiatus hernia and some gastritis and oesophagitis. I had very similar pains and that is what I was diagnosed with. The pain radiating down to the pelvis could be IBS.

      Do you take ppi or IBS tablets?

      You can certainly help your stomach with diet, the best thing for me was give up alcohol. But also I was told to avoid caffeine, chocolate, carbonated drinks,acidic foods like certain fruits and pickles and fatty foods. Regular exercise is good too.

      Well I have only just had my endoscopy last week so I am still getting better. I have cut all the rubbish out of my diet and I am taking double my usual dose of esomeprazole and I also take alverine for my IBS. I feel a lot better than I did though. Have you had an h pylori test? You can have a stool test for that. If you don't want to take ppis, would you take ranitidine or the double action heartburn relief liquid or tablets? PPIs can have side effects, but they can also prevent ulcers and certain cancers. For me the side effects aren't as bad as the discomfort I was having. I don't like being on them but I the potential alternative is much worse for me. When my stomach feels better I am going to cut them right down though.

      My stomach still feels uncomfortable so I don't think it has fully gone, but it started to feel a lot better after a week. I think the endoscopy upset my tummy a little bit too. I do still have an odd feeling in the centre of my stomach, but I am not sure if that is the hiatus hernia or the gastritis or both.
